Catalogue for a series of exhibitions curated by BACO inside Bergamo’s former conservatory. All exhibitions are associated by the fact that all artists involved have been asked to work with the concept of abstraction. The catalogue’s typography uses two colors, white and black, on a dark blue background, in order to insert the characters in some sort of abstract universe, with a non-linear reading.
Book design for Ryan McGinley’s Exhibition “The Four Seasons” at GAMeC Gallery, Bergamo.
The book can be read both horizontally and vertically.
For the exhibition “A Blind Man In His Garden”, held at Zurich’s Luma Foundation, we worked on both identity and catalogue.
We structured our work together with one of our printers, Stefano Fusaro. According to the exhibition’s concept, all curators were to chose the works without ever seeing them in person. So we decided to add some complexity to the communication as well. Disassembling part of the dampening unit of the printing machine, in order to decrease water, and make it insufficient to leave a precise impression. While doing so, we also used a simple hairdryer to dry out the plate, so that the ink would stick even where the master wasn’t engraved. The final result is a two-colors gradient, constantly changing, that overlaps the titles of all exhibited works.
RawRaw is an independent publishing house run by Massimiliano Bomba. In 2015, Massimiliano asked us to take care of their book series “Paper Space Collection”, curated by Davide Giannella. The series aims at using each book as a gallery, presenting unreleased works by contemporary artists.
Each book is accompanied by the production of an artist multiple.
